identifying ways our ethic laws could be strengthened. as supervisors, what if anything would you propose to strength the city's ethics laws. i will start with mr. davis. >> strong ethic laws are essential. what is happening with our sunshine task force and hope davis can speak to this since she recently served on the task force. these need to be strengthened and one problem we have is around enforcement. i would like to see more of the ethical violations of larger committees, some of which are operating, for instance, in some shady areas of law. one was the run he ed run, the committee for mayor ed lee last year and the campaigns that aren't swaying the politics of city, the way the run ed run campaign did. so i think that is one the issues and improving our good government and ethic laws in san francisco. >> miss breed, would you like to address the question? do you want me to repeat it? >> yes. >> sure. a recent chief civil grand jury report, at the request of supervisor campos the city conducted a comparison of laws identifying ways our ethic laws could be strengthened. as su
the uc davis school of law in 2004, following a clerkship with judge cal braise of the united states court of appeals for the second circuit. interest include election law, administrative law, statutory interpretation, constitutional law and property and natural resources law. he is a resident of san francisco's mission district. we are honored to work chris almendorf. [ applause ] >> thank you very much and thank you to all of the candidates who are here today. we're very fortunate to be joined by six candidates and what i hope will soon be seven. all of the candidates have agreed to ask their supporters to be respectful of other candidates and the audience and to maintain quiet during the forum. i ask you to respect that commitment. every aspect of this forum will be equally fair to all participating candidates. as everyone here knows candidate debates are often limited to latitudinal appears and personal attack. our debate focuses on critical areas of policy disagreement among the leading candidates. so this end the league of women voters of san francisco and the san francisco pu
-- berkeley where he attended law school. he was, i'm sad to report, not much of a student, but he was a joiner of fraternities and maker of friends. and it was there at berkeley that he came of age just as california bulldozed its way into a new kind of politics in state history. the political movement that warren was witness to was, importantly from the his perspective, led by a trial lawyer. even as a somewhat shy young boy, warren had dreamed of practicing law in a courtroom, and as a college student he had the opportunity to watch up close one of the most arresting trial lawyers of his generation. hiram johnson, of whom i'm speaking, was a young lawyer in san francisco who was could upon to take over a corruption case against the city's mayor and some co-conspirators in a bribery scandal. he took over the case, he was second chair of the case at the outset but took over the first chair when the lead prosecutor was shot in the head in court by a dismissed juror. law students, take note. [laughter] it -- johnson made his name in that case and went on to serve as governor of cali
might address that gap. [laughter] there are six products of harvard law school and three products of yale law school on the supreme court. there are apparently no other law schools in the united states. [laughter] besides those two. no, it is a bizarre and unfortunately fact, i think. but those are, i hope, interesting facts about the supreme court. but frankly, i don't think they're very important. here's an important fact. about the supreme court. there are five republicans and four democrats. i will speak for somewhat longer, but this is basically all you need to know. [laughter] if be there's a takeaway here, i have gotten to the point early. there are five republicans and four democrats, and that really tells you much of what you need to know. and it is true that the justices wear robes because they're supposed to look all alike, and they're supposed to look, you know, it's supposed to give the perception that they're all pretty much the same, but just as on the other side of first street the united states congress is deeply divided according to party, so is the united states
at this this morning. alabama also has virtually the identical stand your ground law that florida has, so do you know that the officer ms case can probably say he was he felt that he was in danger of his life and he was standing his ground and shooting. i'm betting as this proceeds, you may see that law that we've heard so much about rear itsingly head now in alabama. >> that is really interesting to note. now, cnn, paul, spoke with the victim's mother in this case. she is, understandably, in shock. when things do settle down for her, would she have any legal recourse against the school? >> well, it's hard to say. obviously if her son was heavily intoxicated and was trying to attack a police officer, that's going to be a -- that's going to be a tough case to win. however, these campuses have alcohol problems. virtually every campus in america today has problems with intoxicated kids, and they have to develop policies to deal with it. now, this particular university, by the way, is a dry campus. you're not allowed to drink at this campus, even if you're over 21. i noticed from some local news reports
as a community service, i host a radio and tv program called "folk law for ordinary folk," it's a very tough one in the sense that workers at some point are essentially giving up higher salary and higher pay in exchange for those pension benefits. so to come back later on and essentially cut that out from under them, the question is one of fairness and of equity. that being said, as far as police and firefighters, obviously those are public safety areas and it's a little bit different in the sense that we definitely need to protect those pensions in a different manner than we do others. as far as other ways to save, i would certainly look at capping pensions moving forward, so that they don't increase incrementally over time. i think we need to put a cap on that now before it starts to burgeon and get out of control. >> thank you. >> miss olague. >> i believe i was one of the individuals who answered no. i don't think we should balance the budget on the back of the workforce, and there was prop c. prop b was the adachi measure and proper c was a lot of pension reform where the unions and the
-- pill to swallow and the best way to get them to do that was to stress that this was the law. this was the rule of law and he is president was going to take care of the law. it made it much easier, and easier pill for the south to swallow. [applause] >> jonathan is great to be with you today and with all the booklovers at this fabulous festival and with a very distinguished biographer, jean edward smith way think has contributed immeasurably to the eisenhower scholarship and i have to agree he was underestimated definitely and i'm so glad that you have written such a powerful book. i think it's fascinating in reading the book to see that more of the book is focused on the military career, even though as you've just spent almost most of your time talking about the incredible eight years of of the eisenhardt registration, the estate leaned over and whispered to me i have never heard the interstate highway system applauded before. pretty exciting. first-time. >> all those people who were applauding are now going to get on 395 and be stuck in traffic or three hours. [laughter] po
correspondent mike emanuel. >> the law says mass layoffs are coming, notices should go out 60 days ahead. obama administration that isn't necessary since many are hoping a deal will be struck to avoid the cuts. even so, a ceo i talked to he will be up front with his employees. >> it makes it challenging. people come to work. we've got some of the best people in the country working for us. they come every day, they want to design the best systems that our fighters need, but it's challenging. when they sit around kitchen table at night. honey, what is going to happen? it's tough because they don't know. >> reporter: obama administration is telling contractors if they get sued for not sending out layoff notices the government will pick up the tack. lockheed martin will hold off telling workers, but two kron man sent a letter saying quote, should you rely on that guidance and fail to comply with the warren acted requirement, will you be setting up your company for serious legal and financial reprosper cushions. graham sounds pretty upset. >> in 2007, senator obama wanted to extend the notice requir
-year associates in law firms, they make about the same. but women on average choose to work fewer hours than men even when they work full time. because, you know, full time is anything above 35 hours a week.r and women work about 12% i fewet hours. about 25% of women work part time. many women go in and out of the work force as they have children, and that on average reduces their average earnings,o but it doesn't mean that they're discriminated against. average s their average earnings, but it doesn't mean they are discriminated against. it doesn't mean if you take to women into men in the same job they don't earn the same. they do. >> what is the paycheck fairness act, and do you think it is necessary? >> the paycheck fairness act just was up again for a voting congress. it failed. it also failed when there was a democratic house senate and president and barack obama's first term. that's because it would require them to report to the government the women they have on their payroll, the men have on that there'll come how much they pay both groups. and that's an attempt of a government should tr
through the internet, according to a law enforcement source, both men in the connecticut case appeared in their united kingdom prison jump suits, then they were handcuffed and being led in and standard practice the handcuffs were taken off for the legal proceeding. they will also, of course, face more legal proceedings down the road. >> richard roth in new york, thanks so much. >>> now to some other very pressing domestic matters. the new jobs report, it's become a political football with the election just a month away, the labor department says 114,000 jobs were created in september with the unemployment rate coming in at 7.8% now. that's a drop of .3% from august. no spuurprise that in this seas there's different views of the same number. the chairman of economic advisers says friday's employment report provide further evidence that the u.s. economy is continuing to heal from the wounds inflicted by the worst downturn since the great depression. jack welch tweeted this, unbelievable jobs numbers, these chicago guys will do anything, can't debate so change the numbers. and the partisa
and groups of men. rather than as the law holds right now, men and women in comparable jobs in the same job. so what they're trying to do is have equal pay for equal work, not equal pay for equal work, which is two very different things. there's no reason why groups of women and groups of men in the same firm should be paid the same if they have radically different jobs. look at exxon, for example, that is a group of men and oil drilling activities. it's a dirty dangerous job. you could not get me to do. you have to pay people a lot to risked their lives doing that kind of work. exxon has a group of women in communications, assistant jobs, publications. there's no reason these two groups should be necessarily paid the same. but the paycheck benefit would be moving toward requiring firms to pay men and women the same, even if they're in very different jobs. that is not paycheck fairness. that's communism. >> diana furchtgott-roth, your book, women's figures, was there a time when women were treated unfairly in the work place? >> there certainly was. there were times in the 1950s and 1960s, y
obama has passed a law that loots medical care to the current budget window to pay for the unpopular partisan health care law. that's a fact. it is paul ryan and governor romney that actually have a plan to save medicare for future generations without affecting current retirees. >> i want to show you some tapes. we had our group of undecided voters that were watching. let me play some reactions to paul ryan. >> i thought he came off confident but not as confident as vice president joe biden. i felt that he did -- once he felt attacked, he decided to attack back. >> i think he's ready to be vice president. i don't think he's ready to be a president. >> i think he definitely stood his ground, even when vice president biden was being kind of immature, i thought. >> you heard sort of the gamut there. >> that's interesting. >> do you think -- i've heard this from other republicans, he was reserved and he didn't want to -- as one republican said -- suckered into a fight and go down rabbit holes. >> i think paul ryan was the one that looked more vice presidential or presidential than vice p
and the law was added to the tax code by then senator lynn done b johnson, some historians say as to silence them. and some say the law is unconstitutional. the irs has no business make ago theological determination that certain topics are off limits if you are having church on the weekend. >> but organizations like americans united for separation of church and state. say the johnson amendment must be be upheld to protect the divide between faith and politics. >> what's at stake is the integrity of churches. churches are not supposed to be political action committees. people don't go to church for the purpose of hearing who to vote for for the city council or president, they go there for spiritual solace, they go there for personal, moral instruction to learn about their holy scriptures, not to be told who is the best president. >> this is the fifth year of freedom sunday. in the election year, the participating pastors has grown thee-fold. the goal is to get the irs law to be thrown out and the immediate goal is to have them vote their biblical values on election day. >> thank you very much
the law. and i said they were bad laws. their customs, they were tradition, and we wanted america to be better to live up to the declaration of independence, make real our democracy. when i got arrested the first time this books and i felt free. i felt liberated and today more than ever i feel free in the liberated. abraham lincoln 150 years ago freed the slaves but it took the modern-day civil rights movement to elaborate a nation. [applause] i know some of you are asking where did you get the name "across that bridge," where do to get the title from, life lessons and the vision for change? just like a few short years ago since this is an election year, hundreds and thousands and millions of people come in 11 states and the old confederacy from virginia to texas couldn't register to vote simply cause of the color of their skin. people stood in line. it took a state like the state of mississippi in 1963, 1964, 1965 more than four need to keep those in the but only about 16 those and were registered to vote. there was a county in my native state of alabama and the heart of the blac

not given a budget in 3 years in violation of the law. they are not doing their job and they are spewing talking points about the budgeting process. it's a joke. secondly, i expect joe biden to do a good job. he has been debating since the early 1900s. he has done 18 debates already -- presidential or vice-presidential debates. i think he is relatable. i don't take him lightly. i think that paul will be prepared. but joe bidenville to deliver big-time, based on the debate nabarack obama put on the board last wednesday. so he is going to be prepared. he will want to score in points. >> shannon: congresswoman, final response to you and your expect eggs with the debate this weerk in. >> i have debated paul ryan in the budget committee and news interviews like this one. he is certainly a good debater, will come well prepared. vice-president biden will as well. paul ryan has a tall order. is he going to spell out the details that he refused to spell out on this network because he said he didn't have time? he will have 90 minutes. he will have a chance to say why he proposed and mitt romney ha

as well. mr. everett? >> as an attorney, i am required to uphold the laws of the state of california, and the united states as well. i'm required to do so in a completely even-handed manner. i do so with no problem and with all the love in my heart. that being said, it would be ridiculous, disingenuous and completely unhelpful not to realize that certain segments within our population here in san francisco need help more than others. it would be absolutely preposterous for me to sit up here and tell you that we're going to approach polices of economic advantagement in an even-handed manner. that would do a disservice to and again, we are a weaker city if we allow certain segments of you are population to essentially rot. we're a stronger, vibrant and more resilient city if we address the issues of those least among us, tackle them, and face them head-on. >> thank you. >> that is what i'm about. truth and honesty in our policy approached. >> mr. resignato. >> i think one important thing we need to look at is vision. really, you know? a vision for what san francisco is going to be
